3 Female-Fronted Rock Bands Using Their Voices For Good

In a male-dominated industry, it’s more important than ever to make sure we’re listening to female voices in music, especially on the rock scene. Women in rock are constantly using their platform and voices to help others, whether it’s fellow women on the scene, people in unhealthy relationships, or anyone feeling down about the state of the world. Let’s take a look at some of our favorites that you should add to your playlist!

The Venomous Pinks

Lead by vocalist Drea Doll, this all-female trio from Arizona are never afraid to speak their minds on top of a killer guitar riff and an equally energetic beat. Their latest single, “No Rules,” is all about the toxic relationships we all find ourselves in at some point, whether it’s romantic, platonic, or familial. They break free of the chains the connection shackles them in and the results are not only awe-inspiring, but empowering. We’re sure there’s plenty more fire like this track on their upcoming album, so be sure to presave Vita Mors here and connect with the band on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and their website!

You’ve got one life. One chance. Always do your best. Stand for what you believe in. You’re much stronger than you think. When you really want it, you are unstoppable. Hold on to what your heart speaks.

The Vakili Band

Lily Vakili is, simply put, a powerhouse. And when you factor in an equally-talented band, her prowess is only brought to life even more! The Vakili Band have been making waves thanks to their powerful bond as a group, bold lyrics that offer fresh perspectives on universal feelings, and the standout, brass-tinged sound they’ve honed in on. Their recent track “Father’s Son” showcases everything unique they have up their sleeves, giving us everything from drama to whimsy within four minutes. Get to know the Vakili Band on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and their official site!

My lyrics are a poem with references and nods to what it is to be an outsider, loner, non-conformist – an artist, a son, a woman, a person that doesn’t accept easy categorization. That feeling [of feeling cast out] is maddening, alienating, lonely… until you find your people and your place in the world.

The Warning

Lots of women in rock have said spending time with other female rockers feels like a sisterhood, but The Warning take it to another level as literal sisters. They debuted their latest single, “MONEY,” at a show supporting Foo Fighters in Mexico earlier this month, and with a single listen, it’ll be obvious why they got that honor. “MONEY” is a thrilling statement on the state of society and the human experience, and it becomes even more impressive when you realize the members are only 17, 20, and 22. Keep an eye on The Warning by following them on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, and their website!

The song aims to shine a light on the darkness surrounding widespread corruption and greed, as well as the crippling effects it can have on society. When we allow power and profit to take control over our lives, our natural human tendencies, like feeling empathy and compassion for one another, become lost and forgotten.

  1. Nice article Madison, I am a new “The Warning” fan (four months now) and I am blown away by their talent and songwriting ability. So of course Money would be my fave! The girls are starting their US/Canada tour in a couple weeks and then they will be joining Halestorm and The Pretty Reckless on tour… Exciting times!

    Oh and thanks for showcasing The Venomous Pinks – I’m from Arizona and will have to definitely check them out!

      • I love The Warning, absolutely amazing band! I travel to Mexico to see them live and say hello on Meet&greet. It was a wonderful experience. Thank you for your article Madison. I’ll check out The Venomous Pinks and The Vakili Band! greetings from Perú

  2. The Warning. They come to play & they’ve got things to say.
    Great live band. Great people.
    Ale` (17)(bass-the thunder), Dany (22) (guitar-the lightning)
    Pau (20)(drums-the storm).
    You have been warned!

  3. I’ve been a fan of The Warning since they debuted their forst viral cover of Metallica’s Enter Sandman 8 years ago on YouTube when they were 14, 11 and 9, and caught the attention and praise of Metallica. Their talent was amazing then, and more so when they started releasing their own originals around 2015. Their XII Century Blood and Queen of the Murder Scene albums, composed and released by young teens will go down in rock history as the first major tremors from this groundbreaking band, which it’s fans feel is the best new hard tock band in many decades — and their new MAYDAY EP, the Release of MONEY, and their new 2021 cover of Enter Sandman (which Metallica included on their 30-year anniversary release of the Black Album) will add to this future legendary band. To appreciate their talent at an early age one has to see the first cover, and especially their original, SURVIVE, recorded at TedX at the University of Nevada back when Alejandra, the youngest, still looked shorter than her own bass (she now towers over her sisters).

    Finally, Daniela (Dany), Paulina (Pau) and Alejandra (Ale) have treated fans as family, inviting them by livestream and social media into their home and into their hearts, and captured the hearts of their fans, who get teary-eyed seeing how these girls have grown into their potential supported by their wonderful parents and family. Many of us older fans feel like we have three wonderful daughters in Mexico. ❤️

  4. The Warning are Phenomenal, especially live. I’ve seen them twice and will be seeing them on tour in Pittsburgh in May and July.

  5. The warning me ha regresado la emoción por escuchar nueva música…buen rock. Mujeres tan Jóvenes me han motivado a creer que la buena música está viva.
    The warning son lo mejor que descubrí en cuestión de buena música.

  6. The Warning the future of Rock and Roll. They are young are professional already .They are going to make rock and roll great again.
